Install a wireless access point at the strongest signal spot you have. This will repeat the signal throughout the rest of the house, or an addition length as necessary. You can purchase a good linksys wireless access point at bestbuy for $83 or cheaper from a trusted ebay dealer. Setup is fairly easy, follow manual.

Can not get any digital channels


Digital TVs do require a fairly strong signal in order to operate properly. The fact that your set is displaying the "weak or no signal" message is proof that the incoming signal is below the required signal input level threshold.
A "rabbit ears" type of antenna would only work if you were right next to the broadcast transmitter. I assume that you have the rabbit ears fully extended and that you have tried slowly rotating it from one side to the other to see if you can get a signal lock. But seriously I doubt it.
You should check into either a set-top amplified antenna, or a larger roof or attic mounted antenna. Note: While the larger antenna should provide a much stronger (better) signal, they tend to be directional. You might have to put it on a rotator so that you can "steer" (aim) the antenna toward a particular signal. For most people, this is unrealistic due to the expense and complexity.
My recommendation is to get an amplified omni-directional set-top antenna designed to receive DTV signals

Also Make sure you select the HDMI input using the remote control, should be a button on there called 'Source' or 'AV' or 'Input'. You may need to press it a number of times before getting to the cable box.
Good luck.

Eurovox Max V -codes required for basic channels on Chorus Dublin


Then you don't need codes. It won't amplify the signal and if it's weak it won't receive all the channels.

Cannot set up Motorola Surfboard SB5120 modem


This usually means something is not correct with your incoming signal. If your cable wire into the modem is being run off an amplifier in the wall this could be effecting your service. If the signal is too strong the modem won't be able to communicate for internet.

You could check the incoming wire to see if it is running off an amplifier. If it is you would need to run a new line that is not on the amplifier. I would recommend comcast coming out to check the signal frequency and make the necessary adjustments.

My psp keeps showing error 80410209 when connecting to the internet


This error means that either the internet signal you are trying to connect to is very weak or not there at all. If you have wifi internet around you it could be that there is a firewall blocking you from using it if it is someone elses wifi and if it is yours your router or modem could be blocking incomming wireless connections. If the second is the problem try restarting your modem or resetting the router to the default setting

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Technically, when a TV signal is said to be snowy, it indicates that the incoming RF signal is weak; on the other hand, when a TV signal has static, this refers to electrical noise that goes with the TV signal.

Having said that, then to your concern:
  • for snowy signal, it is the cable providers problem. They have to change where your incoming cable is tapped from, check/replace the feedin cable itself or worst case scenario, replace the line amp/distribution amplifier feeding your cable input;
  • for static noise, what is required is to check possible sources which could include (but not be limited to) electronic ballasts of florescent lamps, electric fans, hair dryers, shavers, wireless phones, computers and others.
Additionally, you may want to check if you have any RF producing devices attached to the TV such as VCRs, DVDs, game consoles. You can try unplugging them when not in use.

Worst case scenario is the tuner block of the TV is getting weak (unlikely but possibly). You can try rewiring the cable to feed first into a VCR, connect the VCR to any of the free Video IN, and select channels through the VCR. If significant improvement, then you have just confirmed an internal fault with the TV tuner, if problem persists, then the static/noise/low RF is caused by something else.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
